Electrolysis for Capillaries & Skin Tags

Skin Lesion and Blemish Treatment

Electrolysis is a simple and highly effective skin treatment for dealing with problems on the skin such as unwanted lesions, blemishes or vein problems.

More commonly associated with hair removal, electrolysis has been around for over 100 years and offers a surprisingly wide range of applications for tackling these skin issues with excellent results.

A press release by the British Institute & Association of Electrolysis explains:

In fear of incurring high private dermatology costs, pain and scarring, those suffering from unsightly blemishes and bumps often make do with cover-up cosmetics or skincare products that offer only limited results.

Many people are unaware that for just a few seconds of mild discomfort – no anaesthetic required – a raft of unwanted bumps and blemishes can be immediately, safely and permanently removed – often with life-changing results.

What Can Electrolysis Treat?

Electrolysis is effective on a range of skin conditions including:

  • broken capillaries, spider veins and thread veins
  • blemishes, skin lesions
  • skin tags, milia and blood spots
  •  warts,verrucae and seborrhoeic warts

How Does it Work?

The treatment process is known as cauterisation, which involves the local application of electrical current via a tiny probe or needle. This heats the area to cauterise or destroy the blemish.

Results are very rapidly visible after treating red veins and skin tags, which may disappear almost immediately.

Advanced electrolysis may be combined with other treatments. The timing of any combination of treatments will be agreed upon during consultation.
